Scott Miller CBS sportsline: Score one for Duquette, O's malnourished offense gets much needed help.
I like the deal. I mean comon guys, does anyone here honestly believe that Lino is going to become anything for us? Get real...we need Major League players, and DD went out and got one. Granted, he can only DH, but with the way our offense has been lately (plus the way Thome hit in Interleague games this year), I think a veteran power guy is exactly what this team needs. Screw it...we didn't lose anything with this deal, so I'm all for it (and like I said, if you think Lino is "something," then I feel for you...).
Shame we didn't get Thome 10-12 years ago. The guy has hit 18 HR's here as a visiting player and seems to love hitting in our park. Would have been nice to see him hitting balls out onto the flag court on a regular basis.
It would have been nice to see him in our cleanup spot those years when we were laughing at Kevin Millar (sans the Moonie, of course)
Unfortunately for you.....the way things have been going of late.....you will likely wind up having to flip him in about a month or so. Such as life as a pretender. (And even thats generous.)
If anything, it'll be fun to watch Thome hit homers in the home run paradise that is Camden Yards.
Well, if it's barren, we did pretty good on the trade, imo.
Wow. There's a bat for the next 10 years.
